Revolutionary Soldiers of Lincoln County, Kentucky

img_0922Tuesday Ritchey and I decided to visit several courthouses in the surrounding counties, particularly looking for marriage bonds, but obtained a few wills in the process, too.

We started in Standford, the county seat of Lincoln County, one of the three original counties formed in 1780 from what was then Kentucky County, Virginia.  Our first stop wasn’t actually the courthouse!  One needs nourishment for such a journey that we would have that day, so we enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast at the Bluebird Cafe – two blocks away.

Once we arrived at the courthouse we found many, many old records, which will be shared at a later date.  On the front of the courthouse, beside the door, was a plaque listing the Revolutionary soldiers of Lincoln County.  I wanted to share those names with you today!

  1. Thank you so much for this article. My direct ancestor on the list is Moses Sweeney. He came to the American Colonies from Northern Ireland and lived in Virginia where he served in the Revolutionary War. He lived near Stanford KY and his original home was still standing until a few years ago. Across from the original home, Moses Sweeney was buried in the small family cemetery that is currently well tended by family descendants. He has many descendants living in the area and many other states.

  2. I’ve just discovered your post. I’m trying to establish Richard Hunt, my 4th ggf as new patriot in my DAR lineage. Do you know which DAR chapter posted this plaque and when?

Any thoughts?
